Crust: In a small bowl, combine crumbs and butter.  Mix well.  Press into bottom of and 8 inch spring form pan.

Filling: In a large mixing bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat cream cheese and sugar for 2 minutes.  Beat in sour cream, flour and vanilla, add the eggs 1 at time beating well after each addition.

Transfer 1 cups of batter to a small bowl.  Stir in chocolate.  Spread half of vanilla batter over crust.  Top with half of chocolate batter.  Layer on remaining vanilla batter then top with remaining chocolate batter.
